Sustianable Design Sustainable Risk

Join Scott Bowman as he discusses how to understand Risk Management in Sustainable Design.

Design and construction is risky, and it is important to make sure that risk is distributed fairly between all parties in the process; Owners, Developers, Architects, Engineers, Consultants, and Contractors. Sustainability also comes with risk, and some unique aspects that deserve special attention. Sustainability also amplifies some age-old communication issues that have been with the design world since Pharaohs first asked for pyramids! This session will look at both new and old issues and how they can be managed within the new lens of sustainability

LEED v4: The View From The MEP Seats

Join Scott Bowman as he discusses LEED v4.
LEED v4 is a significant advance in this premier sustainability standard. While there has been much spirited discussion about major changes to the Materials and Resources credits, as well as ongoing controversy over sustainable wood, less controversial (in fact, quite logical) changes to other credits will have even more impact on projects.
This program will focus on how LEED v4 will affect the mechanical, electrical, and commissioning aspects of projects. Designers need to communicate and manage expectations of their clients, and knowing this aspect of the project will be an important component of that message. Know what your engineers are concerned about before they ask!
Many prerequisites and credits will be discussed and changes noted. However, this presentation will go beyond information to critical analysis informed by significant past experience and ongoing discussions, addenda, and corrections.
